    Big Ride of the Year

    So my brother inlaw and I have been doing a bunch of riding this year in preperation for an all day ride, we have no real goal in mind other than riding as hard as we can for as long as we can, hoping to get a double century in. Ride to take place form Oshawa Ontario, Canada and hopefully end up just past Prescott Ontario. Luckally the day of ride, August 17th is calling for sunny skies and a 10km/h tailwind but we shall see. If we wake up to a strong east wind all bets are of on completing a double but we will still go for whatever we can get then try and beat it next year. For the first year we will be doing ride ourselves but a friend of ours is starting a tour company and it may turn into a feature ride for those crazy enough. This will be done on our regular rides not tour bikes and at the end a hotel room, beer and pizza. Next day brother inlaws Dad will be driving us home. Will be taking a small camera so hopefully I will have a bunch of pictures for viewing.
    Best thing about cycling is when I'm at work I'm thinking of cycling, when I'm cycling I'm thinking about cycling.

    Sounds like fun. Yes, please post some pics. I'm hoping to get in a good day's ride at the east end of your planned route in the near future, so I'll be watching for your report. Have a great time.
